In the Wake of the news of Blink 182's reunion, announced at the Grammys earlier this month, the band was interviewed in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and discussed the potential sound of their upcoming new album.
"We’re talking about using analog keyboards from the Sixties,” says Tom DeLonge, who fronted emo-rock band Angels and Airwaves after leaving Blink. “People are going to be blown away.”
As for the band's reunion, Delonge put it pretty simple - “I put the bullshit aside and wrote him a letter. There was no big talk; after a couple of phone calls, things were back to normal.”
Bassist Mark Hoppus shed some light as to why the band broke up in the interview as well.
“When Blink-182 broke up in 2005, they were sick of fame. The giant vehicle of the band was determining everything,” explained Hoppus. “It sounds cheesy, but we needed to take time to find ourselves.”
The band, who's sold more than 12 million records since forming in 1992 are hard at work on their self produced sixth album. The band is also planning a 2009 tour, which is expected to be one of the highest grossing tours of the year.
